ALCS Game Five Preview: Red Sox at Tigers

by Paul Sporer


The Red Sox are two very key hits from being at home for the season. That isn’t framed that way to take away from them being tied 2-2, but rather it is meant to point out just how lean the margin is in the playoffs. They are hitting .186 with 53 strikeouts and the only two starting pitchers to get wrecked have been Red Sox and yet the series now comes down to a three-game set during which they will have home-field advantage.

Red Sox (Jon Lester) at Tigers (Anibal Sanchez) 8:07 p.m. ET
PECOTA odds of winning: Tigers 51.8%, Red Sox 48.2%

Projected Starting Lineups:

Red Sox vs. Sanchez (R)

Tigers vs. Lester (L)

Jacoby Ellsbury (L) CF
